Every school in Yorkshire has cases of coronavirus infection

Students across Yorkshire have been asked to self-isolate after outbreaks of coronavirus in schools.

All schools across the region reopened by this week and some have already identified positive cases of Covid-19.

Schools have introduced ‘bubbles’ within their structures so outbreaks can be contained to the smallest number of students and staff as possible.

In most cases, Yorkshire schools have only had to send a few students or staff home to self-isolate for 14 days.

Here is a list of schools in Yorkshire that have seen outbreaks of coronavirus.

Leeds

Bardsey Primary School in Woodacre Lane, Bardsey, delayed its reopening – scheduled for today –  after a staff member tested positive and was told to self-isolate for 14 days.

The staff member had been in school with colleagues preparing for the new school year – and those staff also have to self-isolate at home for two weeks.

Only years five and six will return today, with other year groups delayed until next week.

Bradford

Dixons Academies Trust confirmed that two staff members and one student had tested positive for coronavirus at three of their academies.

The Bradford-based Trust did not name the schools but two are understood to be Dixons Trinity Academy and Dixons Kings Academy, both in Bradford.

The Trust has 12 schools in total, with some of these in Leeds.

A small number of staff and students were asked to self-isolate after the outbreak.
